Cantel Medical Corp. (NYSE: CMD), a leading global company dedicated to delivering innovative infection prevention products, services, and solutions, announced today that it has broken ground on a multimillion dollar expansion effort at its Rush, New York facility to provide employees with more space and capacity to support the significant growth of the Company.
The newly expanded facility, located at 6789 West Henrietta Rd. in Rush, NY, will have the capacity for approximately 350 employees, and the Company anticipates this expansion will create a significant number of new jobs for the community.
“Our team has doubled in size over the past few years as we have experienced significant growth in our Dental and Alternate Care Division,” stated Gary Steinberg, President, Dental division. “The expansion of our facility will allow us to keep pace with our growth while meeting the continued needs of our business. This milestone further demonstrates our commitment to our team while driving operational efficiencies to better serve our customers around the world.”
“We are excited to begin construction to expand our facility, and want to express our deep gratitude to the city and county officials who supported our efforts and partnered with us to make the vision for this project a reality,” said Scott Thome, Senior Vice President, Operations for Cantel. “We look forward to expanding our facility and believe that this investment will provide tremendous value to the community through the creation of jobs, helping fuel additional economic development in Rush and Henrietta.”
Cantel purchased land in Rush earlier this year and now plans to start construction of a 100,000-square-foot addition to its existing manufacturing and distribution center. Once the expansion is complete, the total building is expected to be 137,000 square feet. Cantel anticipates the facility will be available for use in fall 2019.
